Congratulations to Youngbin for publishing his paper in Science Translational Medicine

Jan 19, 2022

Science Translational Medicine published our work that revealed long-range brain waves associated with motor function and epilepsy discharges with record-breaking resolution.  Access the article here: https://www.science.org/stoken/author-tokens/ST-286/full PtNRGrids are a new powerful tool for discovery of the human brain activity under a high-resolution electrophysiological microscope. They allow us to interpret brain activity in space and time over multiple cortical areas and with unprecedented resolution, therefore paving the way to patch together how our thoughts and actions are synthesized across the complex distributed brain structures. This new resolution affords the capability of understanding and modulating the aberrant brain activity in focal regions where necessary as opposed to gross-some neuromodulation. It will also lead to better patient outcomes in neurosurgical resection procedures for brain tumors and epilepsy. Because it provides more complete understanding of motor function, it will likely lead to better performance in brain-machine interfaces. iframe#iframe-field_news_video-137 {/*frameborder*/ border-width:0;/*scrolling*/ overflow:auto;} Your browser does not support iframes, but you can visit

More media coverage on our paper in Nano Letters

Oct 1, 2013

<p>Many news have picked up on our work on heterostructured materials for Li ion battery anodes. According to IEEE Spectrum : "Now researchers at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) have brought a new perspective to the issue. They are taking a page from band-gap engineering, in which heterostructures are used to create energy barriers between electrons and holes, and applied the concept to creating barriers to the ions as they enter into an electrode so they diffuse in a very specific way." According to New Energy and Fuel , "This work is another example of the ingenuity of the human mind."</p>
